On Saturday, May 29, 2021, the YLA/SNDP team, along with several other community members, laid over 30,000 flags at the Boulder City Veterans Memorial Cemetery to honor the brave men and women who have given their lives to protect our great nation. 

Memorial Day is not about the barbeques and the long, 3-day weekend. It is about honoring and remembering our country’s fallen heroes. On Memorial Day we honor the memory of service members who have sacrificed to protect the freedoms and liberties we enjoy today.

Thank you to all who came out to pay their respects.

To follow our first task of laying down a flag at each of our fallen hero’s headstone, we also retrieved all 30,000 flags, rolled them, and prepared them for next year’s event.
